The Internet vs.T.V.

Have you ever compared the internet to t.v.? There are some pros and cons to both. T.V. does have a little bit of regulation, even if some of it is pretty bad, but we hear of people getting porn and all kinds of bad information on the internet. So, I suppose in some ways t.v. may be a bit safer.

On the other hand, have you ever thought of all that we can do on the internet? You can pick your programming. It isn't run by money. Other than the advertising that pays for the sites, money has little to do with a lot of what we can find on the internet. Anyone with an idea or information, and a desire to share, can provide a website, a blog, or start a group of like-minded individuals. Not being controlled by money means more freedom. For example, we don't have to get all bad news. Did you know there is a website called Happy News?

If you want support or information, you can join an egroup, Yahoo or otherwise. All you have to do to find any number of groups, is go to the Yahoo groups site and put your heart's desire into a search.

Of course, many of you who would be reading this already know all this. Probably you already know one of the big dangers of the internet, which is very similar to t.v. Addiction. Yep, that's me. Hmm. I wonder if there is a Yahoo group for overcoming internet addiction.

Well, that being said, I guess I better get off the internet and get something else done! But if you have any questions about the storehouse that is yours, just let me know.
